Amendment to help revitalise the centre
SUNSHINE Coast Council’s vision to deliver a world class centre for Caloundra is taking another step forward.
Council is proposing a planning scheme amendment to help implement the adopted Caloundra Centre Master Plan, which supports the community’s goals for the area and the master plan’s vision to facilitate a strong mix of commercial, tourist, community, sport, education and living opportunities.
Division 2 councillor Tim Dwyer said community consultation on the proposed planning scheme amendment was now under way.
“The community has an opportunity to make submissions and all feedback will be considered by council,” Cr Dwyer said.
“Following extensive community consultation in the development of the Caloundra Centre Master Plan, this amendment is seeking to achieve greater activation, connection and vibrancy for the centre of Caloundra.
“This special attention given to the centre of Caloundra will boost investment confidence and establish Caloundra as a leading business, employment and community services hub.
“Through this amendment, we plan to secure exemplary architectural design and facilities that will make a significant contribution to the vision for the Caloundra Centre.”
Submissions on the proposed planning scheme amendment will close on Friday, November 9.
